Juan is a promising basketball player that shows exceptional skills. He is offered a scholarship to play Division
I ball at State University. He is very excited for the opportunity, as he sees this as his ticket to fame and fortune.
Sometimes when he plays ball he has a hard time catching his breath and has chest pain, but he attributes that
to late night parties. He resolves to get more sleep and party less with his friends. Juan doesn’t mention this to
anyone and has managed to pass the medical tests required for all athletes to play at State. The team plays
very well and by January they are expected to win their conference and qualify for March Madness. After a
monster triple double game Juan tells his coach that he had times on the court where he cannot catch his
breath and feels dizzy. The coach tells him initially to rehydrate and get a good night’s sleep. The next day at
practice Juan feels better but asks to see the team doctor, assuming that the coach spoke to him but he hadn’t.
The team doctor is employed by the university and the associated hospital, The coach sees the doctor with
Juan and at that point he tells the doc to “do the works to make sure Juan is good to go to play tomorrow.” This
was overheard by Juan’s girlfriend Laura. The doctor does a quick examination on Juan. He notices that Juan’s
heartbeat is erratic and draws some blood for some tests. Although he asked for the tests to be completed as
soon as possible he doesn’t follow up with State’s hospital center, which is adjacent to campus. He doesn’t do
any other tests. He hospital lab subsequently misfiles the blood as a standard order and does not complete the
tests for two days. The day after meeting with the doctor Juan’s extended family drives up to watch him play.
During warmups for the game, Juan suffers a cardiovascular event and collapses on the court. Juan’s mother
sees it happen and also requires emergency medical attention.

II. BODY of the paper.
A. The outline and the paper will address the three main legal issues:
- What is the responsibility of medical doctors in screening student athletes? You are required to use the
article identified in the PDF attached (called “A Legal Perspective on Athlete Screening and Qualification”) as a
reference to address this question. You may also use other sources.
- What duty does a doctor owe a patient? I.E. What is negligence? List and define the four elements. Use the
library to identify a peer reviewed article that helps you answer this question.
- Is the hospital (employer of the doctor) liable? Use the library to identify a peer reviewed article that helps
you address if a hospital is liable when a medical worker is negligent.
B. What defenses are available to the doctor and the hospital? I.E., what can they argue to defend
quite higher than in the pre-1914 era, which was depicted by the Keynesian revolution in economic strategies. The point is that the rise of Keynesianism is credited to incomparable economic success during the period between the end of the second World War and 1973 industrial market economies. This was because Keynesianism emphasized the significance of fiscal policy, which caused in the perfected economic execution during the “Golden Age” epoch (Atesoglu, H.1999). Great functioning can be accredited to an intensification in the liberalization of the universal trade and transactions, uplifting economic strategies that led to minimal inflation rates in terms of buoyant aggregate demand, the amplified governmental support of buoyant internal demand, and the accretion of growth potentialities after the end of the second World. For example, GDP per capita in Western Europe augmented by 4.08 per cent during 1950-1973, the growth and expansion were seen in centrally designed economies, such as Africa , Latin America, and Asia. The “Peak” of unrivaled economic success finished after 1973, with the economic stagnation of the 1970s steering to the fall of Keynesianism. The 1970s stagnation was described by the rising rates of inflation and unemployment, and the cut-rate of economic growth. According to Keynesian criticizers, the economic stagnation credited to the erroneous expansionary strategies embraced under the disguise of Keynesian economy. For example, from 1960 until 2002, average unemployment and inflation rates were extremely low. During 1983 until 1993, the inflation decreased, but unemployment rates were up in most countries, specifically in Western Europe, which credited to hysteresis outcomes and rigidities in the labor market (Guillermo & Rodrigo 2008, 147).
